November Challenge Thread!

Post by Epic Duck Mike » Thu Nov 05, 2015 8:20 am

Got a grudge to settle with another Hobbyist? Looking for some friendly competition? Want an excuse to finally get that model you've been staring at for months finished?

Declare a Deathmatch Sideshow challenge!

Pick a miniature you'd like to paint or convert, find an opponent with the same miniature, and have yourself a hobby-off!

These Sideshow challenges are fun events to help you push your hobby skills to their limits and beyond, and have some fun with other miniature hobbyists in our community. It's actually quite unlikely that you'll be killed or injured as a result of participating, whereas it's quite possible that you'll improve your painting or sculpting somehow.



Accepted Challenges!
MIKE VS KHANKORE: PAINT SOMETHING RED!
afioretti vs. Thalric vs Dez - 4 Sicarian Ruststalker


Open Challenges this month:
Big Brawl: In the Shadows


Photo Due Date: November 25th!

The Rules of Deathmatch Sideshows

1 - You have until this thread locks to form your Challenges; simply post in this thread with the models you're interested in painting or converting. You can call out another hobbyist directly if you'd like - it's all for fun, be as lax or aggressive as you want. While typically challenges should involve the same model, it's perfectly alright to challenge on a category instead (ie "Power Armour" if you have people who want to paint Space Marines, CSM, and Khador Man-o-Wars, or "Giant Creature" if you have people painting Helldrakes and Dragons, etc).

2 - Photos of models completed for Sideshow Challenges must be posted by the predetermined Deadline. This will typically be the 26th of the month at 9AM EST, though it may be extended if the 26th falls on a Weekend or a Holiday. Headline challenge deadlines may be extended under special circumstances if both participants and the responsible moderator agree. Voting threads will then be posted for a 5-7 day voting period.

3 - Conversions are encouraged, especially for The Conversion Brawl - don't be afraid to tweak your miniature and make it your own, even if you're in a Painting challenge!

4 - WIP pictures are not required, but you are more than welcome to post them.

5 - For Painting Challenges, Models should be completely painted, including a finished base (painted or otherwise covered with basing materials). This isn't a requirement of Conversion Challenges, where leaving them unpainted can make your conversion work more apparent.


Picture Submission Rules

1 - On or around the 14th, a Picture Submission Thread will open. Post a maximum of 3 photos of your miniature in this thread, along with the title of your challenge (ie "Mike vs Dez: Chaos Space Marine"). If you absolutely feel that more than 3 photos are necessary, create a collage of your images and submit it as a single picture.

The Perks of Deathmatch

1 - Forum Ribbon - There will be a Forum Ribbon awarded to anyone winning a Main Event. All participants who complete their challenge will receive a silver medal, while winners will receive a gold.

2 - Deathmatch Points - We're not sure what these will do yet - they might award extra ribbons in the future, etc - but you'll earn them, regardless!

3 - Bragging Rights - I don't need to explain this one ;)

Judging

Judging will be done via an open poll on the forums over a 3-4 day period shortly after the 25th.

That's it!

This thread will be locked on (or about) November 21st! Make your challenges now!

I feel like painting one of my Onagri. WHo is up to paint an SKitarri Onager?

Either, I have rangers, vanguards, infiltrators or ruststalkers to paint.

I don't have one, but I will issue and accept anyone who wants to 'Paint Something Red' as a challenge. Use Red as a main color (not the only color, unless that's your thing) and we'll have some fun!

I step in for the sicarians ruststalkers! I must say, to be fair, that they are already based and painted in yellow. Does it bother you?

No problem! I started basing mine as well (although not a lot of work done).
